    What clip would you recommend??

    I said blanket, but blanket or trace would be fine I imagine. I usually manage to get by clipping twice in a winter, once in october time and once after christmas, but my mare has it all off and has a very fine coat, even in winter.

    he just WON'T halt! Surely Anky must have spent ages working on it as it is his main fault? But when it gets to the important bit he just won't. If a horse decides it doesn't want to do something it won't and theres nothing we as riders can really do about it. They aren't machines. They have a...

    If you could have a lesson with a pro rider who would it be and why?

    Pippa Funnell- she is already an inspiration to me and I like her determined attitude and her way with horses, and i'm pretty sure she would tell it just how it is, which would suit me down to the ground. A lesson with her would absolutely be a dream come true. Alternatively- William Fox-Pitt...

    Cheating in the Gymnastics

    Its like with the badminton when the Chinese pair clearly double hit against Emms and Robertson but were still allowed the points. I think the Chinese clearly have a lot more on their side then luck and talent in these games.

    Pony club mounted games team disqualified - sour grapes comment

    sorry... my mistake. Didn't mean to cause offence i'll be more careful when posting next time. TripleSandH, basically in the litter race the boy missed the changeover in the box and failed to hand the stick to the next team member. He then smacked his pony with said stick and thumped it in the...

    Jumping wire fences.... views?

    Wow this is suprising. I'll jump ANYTHING out hunting, unless theres wire involved, either over it or even running through it if its a hedge, but neither will our field masters so we never really have to.

    Commentators - BBC Olympic coverage

    Agree about Desi Dillingham she was fabulous at Gatcombe explaining the dressage displays. Really good. I loved Ian Stark he was hilarious! 'I apologise in advance if a swear'! and MT- well i suppose I can forgive his mistakes because of his endless enthusiasm!

    Went to a hunter trial yesterday, and about 30mins from home on the way back, Finnie kicked (as usual) on a roundabout. Just as we pulled off a car came passed yelling so we pulled up straight away to find that she'd kicked her way through the floor of the trailer. I was absolutely heart...
